'A' for Effort

I wrote this book, but you don't have to take my word for it. It's pretty lit. Pun intended.

The Woods

Compelling portrayal of a boy's tough journey through teen years. A great read for any young adult who wants to read a gritty, real book about the realities of today's world for teenagers.

a rare window into the insidious world of for-profit "troubled teen" industry

an insightful, raw reclamation of an impossible experience. the author's fearlessness is palpable in his prose as he does his best (possibly *the* best) to describe the indescribable journey of being a "treatment kid."

it would be easy to handwave the book's power as being purely a product of the scandalous plot. what a salacious thing, this "troubled teen" industry; the facts alone could make a story, no talent or style needed. but viceconte isn't lazy like that; instead, his irreverent wit and provocative style make what could have been merely flimsily-padded shock value into a genuinely enjoyable, careening read.

it is notable that though the protagonist's world is a highly specific, insular one (not only in the uniqueness of the experience but also in his overseers' deliberate machinations to isolate his world and make it as inscrutable as possible for outsiders to understand), viceconte manages to give readers a solid sense of that world's intricacies, both logistically and emotionally.

highly recommend.
